Java Web Application with Kundera JPA on Tomcat 7

I have developed a JAVA Rest Service (JDK 1.8) which uses Kundera (V3.2) for a Cassandra Database connection. If I run my application inside eclipse with a Tomcat-Server everything works well. If I want to deploy .war file on another Tomcat 7 the server does not start because of following error:

com.impetus.kundera.loader.MetamodelLoaderException: Error while retreiving and storing entity metadata, Caused by : .


After searching for some solution I found out that the problem can be that I have my entities in an separated jar (which is a dependency in the war file) and and not in the application itself. If this is the problem I have to add the
<jar-file>
tag to my
persistence.xml
(https://github.com/impetus-opensource/Kundera/issues/90).

My persistence.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="2.1" xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_2_1.xsd">

</properties>
</persistence-unit>
</persistence>


Is the separate jar-file possibly the problem or should I search for other solutions?

Answer

The problem was the separate jar-file for entities. When adding the jar-file tag, pointing to the jar for entities, to the persistence.xml everything is ok.
